AUSTIN -- For the week ending May 28, feeder cattle price trends at Texas auctions were mixed, from $10 lower to $6 higher. Poor pasture conditions, tight supplies, lower fed cattle markets and fluctuating grain prices were again the primary influences on markets. Fed cattle prices were lower. Cotton prices were lower as export demand continues to falter. Corn and grain sorghum were higher because of continued planting delays in the eastern Corn Belt, while drought on the Great Plains and spring wheat planting delays pushed wheat prices higher.

As for futures markets, feeder cattle, fed cattle, cotton, and corn were lower while wheat and lumber were higher. Parts of southeast and north-central Texas reported an inch or more of rain, but most of the state recorded little or no rainfall during the week. Topsoil moisture was rated adequate to short in parts of the Blacklands and Northeast Texas, and short to very short elsewhere. By week’s end, wheat was 99 percent headed and 19 percent harvested, both ahead of normal. Cotton was 65 percent planted, slightly behind normal, and 11 percent was squaring. Corn is 98 percent planted and 36 percent of the acreage is silking. Grain sorghum is 78 percent planted and 50 percent of the crop has headed. Corn, cotton, rice, and grain sorghum were rated in mostly fair to good condition, while pastures were mostly poor to very poor.
